Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

Lifecam vx-1000 Hi, I bought a Lifecam VX-1000 to use with windows live messenger on my computer that has Windows Vista Basic. Everything installed ok but when I try to use the camera I get the following message We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again. No other programme is running the camera. Ive tried turning off my firewalls and reloading the software but nothing has helped. Ive also tried to run the audio and video set up but get an error message saying that it cant be run? Any help I would be grateful . Thanks

Lifecam vx-1000 with vista from the internet


There are number of ways:
1. Connect the camera to the PC and go 'start' - 'Windows update' and let Windows and the update site find the driver for you.

2. Search using your browser by going to Microsoft.com and entering 'driver lifecam VX-1000'. The search will provide you with a number of options, one of those will be for Vista.

3. Right click on 'My Computer' -'Manage'-'Devices' and pick the one with the question mark (should be your Lifecam), 'update driver' and let it search the internet for the driver.
